I've used this several times now and am still leaving it at 4 stars, but have some further information to add.
The size lever does still fall/change and that is annoying. It (may) moves when you release the trigger to stop the flow of seed to the rotating disk. When you are holding the trigger the size-lever cannot move. But when you release the trigger, in my experience, the size lever is prone to move to a larger setting. To make it worse, the size-lever is very near your hand, so it is easy to hit it with your hand also, especially when it is full and heavy.
Aside of this... I've used this to spread grass seed, lime and fertilizer on my lawn. I do about half an acre with it, so used it a lot.
Grass seed was a breeze to spread. Lime and fertilizer did tend to accumulate and clog on the rotating disk. I'm sure this is due to the size of mechanism (hand-held size), so not really a fault of the design. But I did have to stop a few times and clean out the rotating disk with my fingers.
What is important is you can easily clean everything afterwards by spraying it with a hose. So cleaning is easy and is necessary to keep the unit from becoming permanently clogged.
I've only used it once (about 30 mins) so far, and it worked well.
I actually bought the Scotts version first and returned it after seeing the horrible reviews it got.
Easy fill and does a good job of really throwing the seeds evenly and a good distance.
I do have one complaint about this model. The button/lever on the handle to select the slot/hole size seems to fall down (and make the hole larger) on its own. I was trying to spread grass seed with the #1 setting and it kept dropping down to #2 or #3.
Hopefully it doesn't worsen (and not stay at all in #1), but time will tell.
I did not have any problems with the crank/gears in the short time I used it for.
I've tried a few different products (seed, fertilizer, bug granules) and everything jams this spreader.
After just 2-3 cranks on any setting (adjustable rate of flow on the handle) it locks up.
Since it's made out of light-duty plastic you can't just force the handle to clear the blockage.
Even just a little bit of of jam makes the handle feel like it's going to shear off.
So what you're paying for is not an all purpose spreader, but something that 'might' handle some mystery product, just not seed or fertilizer.
What you're paying for is a big red cup to hold your fertilizer (or whatever) and then you just have to spread by tossing it out of the top of the cup. You can do the same thing with a milk jug for free.
